Our friends at the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH) continue to do great things. This fall’s series of lunch-time “digital dialogues” with leaders in the field looks like a winner … and not simply because I’m on the program ;)

    Encoder”
  • 9/16 Stanley N. Katz (Princeton University), “Digital Humanities 3.0: Where We Have Come From and Where We Are
    Now?”
  • 9/23 Joyce Ray (Institute of Museum and Library Services), “Digital Humanities and the Future of Libraries”

    Academy”
  • 10/28 “War (and) Games” (a discussion in conjunction with the ARHU semester on War and Representations of War,
    facilitated by Matthew Kirschenbaum [English and MITH])

    Use”

    Multimedia Nachleben”
